Let's plan what community outreach is needed for the switch. (Possibly none at all, given no user-facing changes are expected - in that case just make sure we agree on that.)
|Stalled||None||T181079 [GOAL] Provide an expanded reading experience by improving the ways that users can download articles of interest for later consumption|
|Open||None||T181084 [EPIC] Deploy the mediawiki-services-chromium-render service (Proton)|
|Resolved||Johan||T220648 Communications plan for Electron -> Proton switchover|
@ovasileva since you are the product owner for PDF rendering (which is really what the communication would be about), any thoughts on this?
I'd probably put a note in Tech News, just so users know where to report in the unlikely case that this does have user-visible effects, and at that point we might want to make sure the roadmap wrt. PDF and book rendering is clear to users, as that has been a point of confusion in the past.
@Tgr - @Johan and I have been working on communicating out on the project page (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Reading/Web/PDF_Functionality). I think an update there + Tech News should be sufficient. Do we have a date yet for the switch? @Johan - any thoughts from your side around this?
Yes, that makes sense to me. As soon as we have a date for the switch, we'll include it in Tech News and write an update on that page. That should be about the right level of community communication for this.
